A decade ago, Wande Coal was at the peak of his powers thanks to the success of his debut album, Mushin 2 Mohits. As the decade winds down, though the popstar’s powers might have diminished a tad, he still retains the ability to craft a catchy single.
On the new single titled Ode Lo Like, Wande Coal places emphasis on groupie culture. He waxes lyrically on a jazz inspired instrumental provided by Dapiano. As usual, the single contains Afro rhythms bound to cause an uproar, a move signature to Wande Coal’s vibrant persona. Speaking to Rolling Stone on the interesting title chosen, he said “It’s a street slang generated for people taking advantage of entertainers and ‘cool personalities’ and seeing them as fools, and liking them because they are easily accessed and they easily give in. I’m saying: They love fools, but we are not fools- we know what we are doing.”
He’s also announced an upcoming EP Realms slated to drop on March 6 2020 and the signing of a new deal with the American label Empire.
